I have had this horrible condtion for a long time and has gotten diagnosed with a SH. My question to you guys, especially Mike in Va and guys who have meet or are planning to she Dr Muschaweck is how big is the area that you have pain in?
When I first notice that I had problems with my groin was over five years ago, it feelt like small hernias on both sides but it wasnt any bulge. I could still live fairly normal (but I stopped playing soccer which I did 5 times a week) and the fact that I didnt got an diagnos didnt bother me so much beacause I had so much other things in life that needed my attention.
But after three years with this condtition a noticed that my pain had increased alot and it had spread over a much larger area (my first painful area were maybe 3 cm in diameter) and I had now pain from the waistline all the way down to pubic-tubercle. Maybe 12 cm or so and still no bulge so it must be nerve-related otherwise I will freak out beacause then my tear is 12 cm!!
I have also started to notice that I am hypersensitive in the skin in that area so it hurt even if clothes touch he area (it sounds crazy, but I warn you guys, get treatment right away because after a while with this injurie you get so many imbalances in your body and all sorts of strange pain that you will freak out)
I have now problems even putting my socks on because I am so stiff and restricted in my motion because of pain and I am a young man who looks really fit and have never been sick in my life.
So my question is, are there any else her who have pain in a really big area in the groin? My fear is as I said that something is really bad teared in my whole groin but when I think rational it seems that in that case it should become a real hernia, and I have no bulge.
And Mike in VA, after Muschawecks surgery, was it hard to find a good sleeping-position? Did it hurt much in the night?
I have read that you have kids and I can really relate to have hard it is with all the lifting and stuff when you have this injurie. It is very tough mentally.
